Since the website currently offers replacement screens for the original iPad for $63.35, the higher price of the so-called "iPad 2 screen" could possibly corroborate reports of a higher-resolution display on the second-generation tablet. Apple will reportedly quadruple the number of pixels on the iPad with a 2048x1536 resolution when it launches a new model, expected this spring.
On Sunday, AppleInsider exclusively reported that a source familiar with Apple's graphics plans has indicated that Apple could upgrade the next generation of the iPad and iPhone to dual faster graphics cores . The Cupertino, Calif., company is also rumored to be planning an upgrade to the multi-core ARM Cortex-A9 CPU for its devices.
Globaldirectparts.com is also selling an "OEM Apple iPad Vibrating Motor" for $9.99. Though no image is available for the part, it is currently listed as "In Stock." Since the original iPad does not have a vibrating motor, the part may be evidence that Apple is working on vibrating alert functionality for the second-generation iPad, though, of course, the part could also be mislabeled or erroneous.
